Our final couple of days in Germany (Wednesday, May 11 and Friday, May 13) were focused on studies and our group presentations that we have all been working very hard on.
The Technische Universität München (TUM) university in Munich welcomed us and we were very fortunate to have lectures on family business and a presentation from a local entrepreneur. The lectures were presented through the Center for Entrepreneurial and Financial Studies (CEFS). The CEFS seeks to transfer academic knowledge into practice through various projects. Research focuses on ownership structures and corporate finance in private and public capital markets including the following main research areas:
• Financing family firms
• Effects of ownership structures on corporate policies in listed firms
• Venture capital and private equity
• Social entrepreneurship and venture philanthropy
Finally! All the preparation came down to the final presentations – they were all excellent:
You made it guys! Good job!
